Forced charity is still bullshit

The new pope is making the case that caring for the poor doesn’t make you a communist, and he is right. What can be argued makes you a communist, or if you want to be pedantic and stick to the definition that communism means the state owns everything, what it makes you is a collectivist douchebag, is when you expect government to do it after it uses force to confiscate the earnings of others, and all under the pretense it is doing so to help.

Fuck the lot of you slavers. If you want to care for the poor use your own money. That’s what makes it nobel. Speaking of using their own money, that cult in Rome can really help the poor if it sold off some of that wealth it has and used that instead. Know what I am saying pope?

Fuck all of you marxists!

Today is May Day, a day where the vilest scourge to visit its ills on mankind celebrates its successes. That over 100 million people were murdered by their own governments, and billions imprisoned by the same, for some reason seems to be ignored. All this misery an suffering was brought to these poor people in the name of creating heaven on earth. The fellow travelers of communism, the modern day equivalent, concerned with noble sounding slogans like “social justice”, “inequality of income”, and “saving the planet”, would visit more of the same on us. The new breed might pretend they are neither communists nor fascists, but they all act from the same playbook, and if given power yet again, would just pick up where the other butchers left off.

The more things change…

The other day I wrote a post about another leftard that was trying too hard to excuse the evils of communism so they could convince us that what the left is doing these days is for the better, and as I pointed out then, these people are so full of shit that it surprises me they can come up for breath through the bullshit. The left keeps pretending they are the for the little people and that they care, that were it not for the brave actions of the democratic party stalwarts the republicans would side with the rich and rape everyone stupid, but the truth is that when you want special favors, especially as a big company, you go to the left for them. Don’t take my word for it: you don’t get more left leaning than Comcast, a leader in what amounts to a monopolistic industry that because of its incestuous relationship with government manages to rip us all off, and they know whom to buy their favors from.

Comcast, which employs more than 100 lobbyists spent almost $19 million last year on lobbying activities. Its president and CEO, Brian L. Roberts, is a golf buddy of President Obama’s, and a Democratic donor who has contributed thousands of dollars not only to the president’s campaigns, but also to the Democratic Party of Pennsylvania, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the DNC Services Corporation, and to Steny Hoyer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bob Casey. Roberts’ executive vice president, David Cohen, is a former aide to Democratic bigwig Ed Rendell. Cohen skirts lobbying regulations through loopholes, has raised more than $2 million for Obama since 2007, and in 2011 hosted a DNC fundraiser at which the president called him “friend.” Cohen has visited the White House 14 times since 2010, including two visits to the Oval Office. He attended the recent dinner for President Hollande of France.

Cohen plays a major role in the Comcast Foundation, which has disbursed more than $3 billion since 2001, primarily to “groups that serve African-Americans, Latinos, and Asians” and other segments of the Democratic coalition. You will be surprised to learn that many of the groups to whom the Comcast Foundation has donated now support the proposed merger. Of the $33 million Comcast has spent on political campaigns since 1989, more than half, or some $18 million, has gone to Democrats. Barack Obama is number one on the list of the top ten recipients of Comcast’s largesse. There are four Republicans on the list.

The party that claims to be the one of the little people would love to convince you that they are not in it for the power and the money, that they do it all, even if they are in it for the power and the money, because of altruism, but it is all horseshit. The only difference between the collectivists and the oligarchs they want to replace, or have replaced, is that they bank on the stupidity of the masses not to see through their plan. But it is the age old fight where one group of people want to take the power and wealth from those that have it. The left has managed to make what they want to do seem noble by pretending they do it to help the little guy, all the while hurting them and making them even more dependent on the left to survive. Shit, I would point out that the old feudal system or the institution of slavery are alive and well in the new world order the left has created. The only difference between then and now is that so many are willing participants and have no clue.

I knew it could not just be me feeling this way..

That all the bullshit from the left about equality doesn’t exactly mean what most people think is either right or just, and that’s a good thing to discover:

Today, just 35 percent of voters believe the economy is fair to middle-class Americans. Only 41 percent believe it is fair to those who are willing to work hard.

Some politicians, particularly Democrats, are better at acknowledging the importance of fairness, but they have a pretty limited definition of what it means. They complain about income inequality but ignore the larger context.

For most Americans, the context is very important. If a CEO gets a huge paycheck after his company received a government bailout, that’s a problem. People who get rich through corporate welfare schemes are seen as suspect. On the other hand, 86 percent believe it’s fair for people who create very successful companies to get very rich.

In other words, it’s not just the income; it’s whether the reward matched the effort. People don’t think it’s a problem that Steve Jobs got rich. After all, he created Apple Computer and the iPad generation. But there was massive outrage about the bonuses paid to AIG executives after that company was propped up by the federal government.

On a more routine basis, most Americans are offended by the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street. The practice of working for the government to network and then cash in with a firm that needs your government contacts is seen as fair only by those who practice it.

The revolving door hints at the larger problem. The United States is supposed to be a land of opportunity, where everyone can pursue their dreams. Throughout our history, many have started with nothing and risen to the top. But those on top today are busy rewriting the rules to limit entry into their club.

I bolded that section I think is critical. Nothing disgusts me more than hearing the class warriors talk about fairness and wealth redistribution, because their idea of either is a sham. Fairness to the “Champions of the little people”, yes that’s sarcasm, is them deciding who wins and who loses. Big banks, big corps, and big donors, win the day. The leftists act indignant that anybody disagrees with their confiscation of wealth, but then we find out their laws excuse or benefit the really rich leftists they trot out to tell us how noble it is to pay more taxes. When these leftists are simply not paying the taxes they did not give themselves a loophole in the law for – look into how many Obamaites have problems with the IRS – they are avoiding them. Remember John Kerry, man of the people, “did I tell you I won 3 purple hearts” warrior, multi-millionaire by marriage and tax increase lion on the left and his Yacht? He parked that in RI to avoid the taxes his ilk stuck other residents of the state he represents, Massachusetts, with. What a noble man.

Then you have the example of the stimulus. Close to $1 trillion was funneled to the Democratic Party’s special interests, lobbyists, friends, and own campaign coffers, helping prop up public sector constituents, while the private sector got stuck with the bill and the pain of the other attempts to socio-engineer the problems their previous socio-engineering had caused. Don’t get me talking about the TARP bailouts. I disliked the idea when it was floated when Boosh was president, but when the donkeys took over, they doubled the money, and they funneled it all to their special friends on Wall Street, like the article points out. Oh, the LSM helped the donkeys convince the usual low information voter that the despicable behavior by the CEOs of the bailed out companies was not part & parcel of the usual incestuous relationship between these big business entities and government, and in particular the favor buying schemes favored by the demcorats, was just the fault of Wall Street, but Wall Street could not have done what they where doing without the politicians that have rigged the system the way it is. Now, 5 years down the line, I suspect that if we had just let the lot of those “too big to fail” financial institutions go belly up, we would have a lot less of the left’s socio-engineering, but our economy would be better off, and not stuck in this rut.

I am glad to find most Americans still believe hard work should provide the opportunity to make your rich, while an incestuous relationship with government allowing you to make money, stay in business when you should not for whatever reason, or allows you to crowd out competition, are all bad things. And we need to put an end to government employees going from those jobs to Wall Street, where they make a killing, by paying off politicians – practically always from one party which claims to be serving the little people – to then get paid ridiculous cash for getting those favors from their buddies and party mates left in government. It is just as despicable that our government gets to pick winners and losers and is in bed with all these too big to fail institutions that all rip off the tax payers as the wealth redistribution schemes to buy votes are. We should have a law that prohibits people from leaving government to go make money for these too big to fail firms where they are making huge money by using their connections to buy favors in return for huge donations to political campaigns. We stop this practice by preventing government from having that ability. I bet you the democrats, and especially the super rich democrats that want to keep their special circle clean of riff raff they do not approve of, would never let that happen though, even when they tell you that the other party is the one for the rich.

Death, European style!

First we had the story of th lady that liked to do the horizontal mambo with bones, and now we get this:
A Swedish inventor has created a musical coffin – with an in-built stereo sound ­system.

Fredrik Hjelmquist says his CataCombo Sound System is the ideal gift for music lovers who do not want to rest in peace.

It allows people to compile their own personal playlist before they die so their ­favourite music can be streamed into their grave.

The £18,500 system even allows relatives to update the songs for their dearly departed via Spotify and a Catatomb app, using a touchscreen built into the headstone.

Your name wouldn’t happen to be Fredrik Hjelmquist, right Kimpost? (SMILE)

Of course, it is unfair to pick on you Swedes when your fellow Europeans are thinking about this, or even this. Maybe this Swedish guy is hoping to capitalize on so many other European nations offing more of their people by pushing the “feeling less guilt because you at least gave them a cool coffin”, angle? And speaking of offing Europeans, Berlusconi seems like he wants to off the EU. Maybe that whole end of the Mayan calendar thing coming up this Friday is going to take care of all this crazy crap.

Another “We are with the government, and we are here to help you” story

This article deals with the tragedy that befel a citizien that got some “help” from government. True, we are dealing with state level government in this case, but they are going to be the same kinds of people that will eventually be in charge of our new and improved government run healthcare. With this kind of help:

Two weeks after Hurricane Sandy, residents were allowed to return to gather their belongings. But when Maria arrived his home — and everything in it — was gone. All that was left was a plot of land. “I never saw anything like this in my life,” Maria said. “And when I took my wife here a week later, she was crying her eyes out in the street.” Maria said he immediately started making phone calls. “The township didn’t know what happened. I called the governor’s office and asked the assistant what happened. She said to me, ‘Are you sure your house is gone? ‘I said ‘Miss, you misplace your pen or pencil. You don’t misplace your house.'” A picture taken by a neighbor just after the storm shows Maria’s home had shifted off its foundation but it was still standing.

He said he was never told that his home would be demolished and all his possessions thrown away. “I just want to know where my house went, why was it removed, and why wasn’t I afforded the opportunity to get my personal belongings,” he said. Maria contacted the New Jersey Department of Transportation to find out what happened. He got a letter that states that “The DOT did not remove any structure that was not on the roadway… our objective… was to open the roadways.” But here is the problem, Maria said his home was not blocking a roadway and he said this picture proves it.

Who needs enemies? And yet, the left insists we allow government to not just make life and death decisions for us, but moral ones as well. What could go wrong with letting bored bureaucrats on power trips decided who wins and who loses, huh?

More proof that the people that replaced God with government are crazier than batshit

The left has an unexplainable faith that government is the one and only true power on earth to provide justice and balance the scales of all they see is wrong. This faith baffles me, considering how obvious it is that any government is practically always formed of individuals that are practically always far more amoral, faulty, and easily corrupted by even the slightest bit of power, than your average citizen. The stories of government trampling their peoples, for the good of the collective practically always, abound. And this is another one of those stories:

“Red-light cameras are to prevent the very dangerous, so called ‘T-bone’ crashes, where you have the front of vehicle running into the side of another. We are in favor, in concept, of the red-light cameras, but they have to be done to certain engineering criteria,” AAA New York spokesperson Robert Sinclair told CBS 2′s Rob Morrison on Tuesday.

By federal law, drivers have to have enough time to get through a yellow light — three seconds at the typical 30 mph intersection. Back in October, engineers at AAA New York discovered a problem. At some intersections with the cameras, the yellow lights were almost a half-second too fast.

These systems are not about safety. Don’t get fooled. They are about revenue generation. Just like speeding ticket traps are about revenue generation. They pretend that it is because they care and are trying to even save lives. Bullshit! These things are all about generating more money, and power – don’t forget the power – for the forever hungry beast. Anyone stupid enough to think government does anything for our welfare, instead of for it’s own needs and wants, with whatever occasional thing that looks like it does good being accidental, is just plain outright stupid.

And before I get inundated by idiots thinking I am saying I want no government and anarchy should rule, let me cock block that dumb ass argument. I understand the need of government: I just want it as limited as possible, with everyone understanding that government should serve us, not itself, primarily. The more government does, even if you are stupid enough to think it is done for you, the more corrupt and bad it is for us citizens.

Government, contrary to what the marxist ideology – and this belief applies to every collectivist offshoot of this dark cult’s dogma about government – says, can not replace a divine being. At least religions understand that they need to sell the concept of a perfect heaven and hell where we are punished, AFTER life on this earth. The morons that brought the all knowing and just divine god to earth and promised us all heaven on earth in return, have been the ones to be the best at creating the concept of hell on earth. Think hard about that before you pretend government is the solution to anything.
